gsteph (321) - knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Pours a bright copper with a frothy off-white head. Very sticky lacing and a head that has some staying power. Brown sugar and pine nose, kinda funky, but decent with nuances of grapefruit. Flavor is somewhat enjoyable but it seems to be lacking. Fairly enjoyable. Mild hoppiness, with a touch of metal. Hops are prevalent up front and linger mildly throughout. Lemon pith, grassy and floral notes. Some sweetness but overall not much in the way of maltiness. Certainly a reason for low ABV. Middle of the road.

bastarda (167) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 19, 2015
almost irish red nose, with some fragrant, herbal hops, even some oak notes but also a lot of mild citrus and pine; nice and balanced in taste, a bit of caramel malts, soft, almost muffled citrus and pine again, with some black tea/mango/woody hints; subtle bitterness; easy drinking. A good APA

Bottle 15/05/2015 Lush copper colour with a foamy head. Aromas citrusy and spicy. Carbonation gives a strange sensation on the tongue. Slight bitterness with citrus topical flavours. Tasty!

ChtiBreizh (87) - Rennes, FRANCE - MAY 15, 2015
A classic taste for an american pale ale. Citrus, hops, some pine. Average carbonation. A light mouthfeel and not very complex but refreshing.

Draft - Nice Amber color with a large and frothy head full of tiny bubbles. Good amounts of hops in this pale ale. Hop flavors on the nose as well. Balanced I would say. I like a good hop flavor which this has but it is not something that is in your face. Dry flavor.

chucklemation (691) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Pours a copper color with a foamy white head. Aroma is grassy hops and citrus. Flavor is grassy hops and some malt. Has low bitterness - almost crisp. Not bad, but not all that memorable either.

sinfull (1011) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Clear , amber color ; medium-sized , white head. Caramel and lot of tropical fruits in the aroma. Decent bitterness and malty background in taste , but too watery as for me.

tfontana (76) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from Candia Road Convenience. Aroma is hoppy with grapefruit, citrus, spruce, herbs. Appearance is clear gold with good sparkle, minimal creamy white head and minimal lacing. Taste is not much up front but middle to end is mildly bitter (not my cup of tea). Palate is light bodied with pretty thin texture, mildly noticeable carbonation at the end. Finish is dry and abrupt. Overall, a decent ale (for me) and would likely be rated higher for someone who appreciated more bitter beers (like my wife--she gets the rest!).

Cuivrée, grosse carbo, collet moyen persistant. Aromes fruites, orange, mangue. Corps moyen, saveur orange et malt grille. Finale sur amertume legere et bien equilibree. Facile a boire.
